I stayed 4 nights in Bikaner in the very hot off season at this very grand palace turned hotel. When Rajasthan joined India the Rajas were given stipends in lieu of their previous tax collecting. Under Indira Gandhi this was abolished so the Maharajas were reduced to changing their homes into hotels. I feel no sympathy for them at all!... More

When you arrive to the hotel you can only say wow to the nice building and park. The complex has been arranged to an hotel preserving the old Manor and the old equipment but a long time ago probably and what is a very nice visit to start with, becomes a bad hotel experience... The rooms have no window, the... More

I was fortunate enough to spend two nights at this lovely palace. The buildings, grounds, gardens and surroundings are absolutely stunning and very well maintained and it feels like a dream to stay in a place like this. Due to it being low season, the nightly rate was very attractive and affordable. The staff from the front desk, to the... More

Impressive old world charm – originally a palace built in the early 1900s of local sandstone before being converted into a hotel. The hotel in steeped in Indian / Colonial history with numerous photographs adorning the walls as well as an abundance of mounted hunting trophies of deer, antelope, tigers and lions. There is free wireless internet in the rooms... More

We were a group of 4 grown ups and one child who stayed at the hotel for 2 nights. Since it was the off season we were (very nicely) upgraded for our rooms and stayed in two adjacent large suites on the ground floor itself. The food served in the hotel's restaurants are so-so (but I would imagine acceptable for... More

This place ticks all the boxes for a nice palace, but the management and the staff are terrible, the breakfast was disgusting !! my wife opened up a carton of butter and it was liquid and smelt rancid, it spilt all over her dress and nobody seemed concerned atall. There was no chilled juices,cerals, fresh fruit platters etc all you... More

Very nice and comfortable rooms with good service and friendly staff. Excellent ambiance. Great location, away from the city humdrum. Would definitely come back for a longer stay since we spent 1 night.

To start with Bikaner is not the most interesting place in Rajasthan. Jaisalmer is much more interesting. The laxmi Niwas Palace is gorgeous from outside but very deceiving inside, it is faded and need to be redecorated to find is past glory. In fact, I even suggest that you book to its sister hotel just next door which is in... More

Stayed in the hotel during 13-14th April 2014. Hotel has a grand entrance, sprawling lawns, peacocks in the lawns, lush greenery nearby and an excellent facade. Staff was cordial and rooms are quite large in size. Food is a bit average compared to the pricing. Cozy stay and views of palace museum, central hall, swimming pool are beautiful.

We stayed only one night, but wished it was more. The palace is a work of art, wonderful carved stonework throughout, a peek at what it was like to live the highlife in old India. Some would say, its a little threadbare, I would call it character. We were lucky enough to get one of the rooms on the roof,... More
